Organic Forms Pottery

Vendor since 2018

Organic Forms Pottery was established in May 2018 by Melbourne based potter Mark Gambino. Mark has been in the industry for over 30 years and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to offer his students. Specializing in gas firing, Mark enjoys creating his own clay blends and experimenting with his own glazing recipes. for Mark, opening a pottery studio where he can pass on his knowledge and passion for the craft has always been a dream for him and after teaching for the last 5 years at various pottery schools around Melbourne, he decided it was the perfect time to open up Organic Forms. Located in the leafy suburb of Montrose in Victoria, Organic Forms Pottery is a friendly and relaxed studio environment running casual classes six days a week. We also offer gas kiln firing services and studio hire for established potters. We encourage you to come along try your hand at the wheel and make a mess!

11 May 2019 • Casual Pottery Class (Wednesdays)

Really enjoyed this class! Mark was a very friendly and helpful instructor, with a wealth of knowledge. My friend and I had a great time sharing a large block of clay, and having a crack at making bowls and cups. We finished with around 5 pieces each (and only used half our clay, which we were able to keep and use for next time). We will definitely be back for another class to glaze and fire our creations!
